After three years of intense development and building on 30 years of cutting-edge loudspeaker design, Rockport Technologies is pleased to introduce the new Rockport Technologies Orion loudspeaker. In keeping with Rockport’s understated yet timeless style, the ORION strikes an impeccable balance between elegance and pure performance.
The complete case of the ORION is made up of only three components; the inner cast aluminum shell, the outer carbon fiber main shell, and the outer carbon fiber baffle shell. Our manufacturing process completely removes the design constraints imposed by conventional construction methods, and because of this design freedom, the ORION’s shape was fully optimized for ideal drive unit placement, reduced internal standing waves and minimal edge diffraction, ensuring consistent design and unhindered wave launch.
The fundamental absence of any cabinet-induced noise has a profound effect on ORION’s presentation, resulting in incredibly low noise levels, unrivaled dynamic contrasts, and amazing low-level information retrieval. Like LYRA, ORION’s DAMSTIF2™ cabinet is unique in that it has no conventional joinery or fasteners, while achieving multiple goals of maximum damping, stiffness, and mass.
Essential to ORION’s success are three newly developed drive units; the new custom 13-inch carbon fiber sandwich cone woofer, capable of delivering authoritative first-octave response with amazing headroom and grip, an all-new 7-inch carbon fiber sandwich composite midrange with colors densely saturated tonalities and unrivaled transparency, and a 1.25-inch waveguide-mounted Beryllium tweeter with virtually perfect pistonic behavior, resulting in ultra-low distortion and extraordinarily transparent, extended, and dynamically realistic high frequencies.
ORION’s aesthetic appeal is a direct expression of its proper design, and Rockport’s legendary performance has been achieved by virtue of every design choice. Fluent in all musical languages, the Rockport Technologies Orion is your personal gateway to the vast realm of recorded musical art and is destined to become an instant classic.
